LOVELY STAR ORNAMENTS

How easy and simple it is to paste a paper star on a piece of card stock to make a tree ornament! 
So I decided to start making them with the whole group. While the older children could learn to cut out 3D stars, the little ones can try to paste and decorate or probably will need help in pasting as well.
I got them some colourful card stock, ribbons, markers and paints. I was sure that somebody would like to use golden or silver paints and I had them too. Not to forget my good collection of scissors. Everything went on well. After much fun with the cutting we had a good number of awesome stars and some terrible ones too.

So that was a whole pack of card stock because each of them made about 6 or 8 of them not counting the ruined ones. Now how can we make good ones without the trials and a whole lot of paper bits to clean up. They looked awesome on our tree and here we could show you a few of them.

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.



Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
